What a hectic week.

Yesterday the BCC hosted the first interclub race of the season. We saw about 50 racers come out on a beautiful sunny day. The race was won by our own Orrin Bowser, congratulations to him on a sandbag well played

We also had a great Sunday morning ride, lead by its weekly leader, Tony Miranda, care of the Trek Store Barrie! Tony will be at Fred Grant every Sunday morning at 9am, ready to lead you on a great, fun, social touring ride.

Tonight we’ve got the first of our weekly MTB rides kicking off. This year, we’re lucky enough to have Bikeland rider Linnley Clarke leading each & every Monday night ride. So you’ll always have a familiar face to greet you. The rides begin at 6:30 and leave from the Simcoe County Office building in Midhurst. The ride is a social ride, and you will not be dropped. If gaps appear, the lead riders will pause and wait for you to catch up! We look forward to seeing you there.

The Sunnidale Park ride will feature higher speeds, sign sprints, and possibly some paceline riding. It’s geared towards the more serious & experienced cyclists, who are looking to get a little training in during the week, in addition to a social ride. All are welcome, but you may be dropped, so ensure that you are self sufficient in terms of routing & repairs at minimum.

This Thursday brings us the first of our venerable TT series. We will be riding on the Oro Course at the 7th line and 15/16. As in previous years, we must thank Mike & Judy Doble for taking on the chore of timing the TTs, and ensuring everyone gets away in a safe manner, without their dedication, we would not be able to offer the TT series. The weather looks good, we hope to see lots of you out, setting down a baseline time, so you can watch your fitness progress over the course of the season.

Upcoming events this month are the Youth Race on May 21. This will require some volunteer hours to clean the sand from the course, and we’ve also got to clean our adopted section of Ridge Road, through the town of Shanty Bay. Stay tuned for date announcements for each of these undertakings. Thankfully, with these behind us, the rest of the summer is all about riding.

cheers,
robb

The town of Oro, and the OPP were key players in helping us to promote a safe event, it’s great to have community partners so willing to work with us.Speaking of community partners, the level of support, and encouragement from City Staff involved with the recent Baseball Cross held at the Barrie Sports Complex are truly second to none.
